this bit of comedy from the white house correspondents dinner on saturday night when president obama joked about the criticism of not working with republicans more. >> maureen dowd said i could solve all my problems if i were just more like michael douglas >>> good evening. from new york i'm chris hayes. thank you for joining us. truly amazing stuff to cover tonight. how wild conspiracies are causing an absolute gun frenzy in this country and how washington politicians are legitimizing them. and a state so out of control, citizens are willing to go to jail to protest the laws. you might remember this bit of comedy from the white house correspondents dinner on saturday night when president obama joked about the criticism of not working with republicans more. >> maureen dowd said i could solve all my problems if i were just more like michael douglas in "the american president." i know michael's here tonight. michael, what's your secret, man? could it be that you were an actor in an aaron sorkin liberal fantasy? some folks still don't think i spend enough time with congress. why don't you get

that president obama can take on his own starting now. >> so that is yet, right? you talked to the white house today, howard. >> yes. >> did they give you a sense of what the content of what those steps, affirmative steps, my look like? >> i asked them and got an explanation to the assistant of the national security adviser. she said they're going to appoint a new person at the state department to take over the role of looking through these cases. that's something they had let lapsed. >> david freed had overseen this, overseen deals to get about 40 or so folks transferred. he had left and not been replaced. >> the fact that they hadn't replaced them showed where their actions were. secondly, they said we admit that the pentagon hasn't done enough to look through on a case-by-case basis for possible waivers that the congress gave the administration power to do. and she said they're going to start doing that very actively. so i think the proof is going to be in the administrative actions, and the key that the president used that caught your eye and mine was the word administrative. he complained

white voter turnout. in ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, florida and colorado. that is further evidence of the true significance of the obama coalition. it represents a genuine progressive majority in this country. and when the obama coalition is activated and invested on an issue they can change political gravity. they can make things orbit in a different way than they would have otherwise. in the wake of the sandy hook massacre, under the leadership, under a sudden outpouring of money, organization, effort, rhetorical leadership and passion, we've seen the political gravity around the issue of gun safety move faster and further than anybody would've guessed it could just a few months ago. so, yeah, that vote was a setback, a big one. the real story is the politics that come after the vote. and the president said as much himself on the day the background check bill went down under a senate filibuster. >> all in all, this was a pretty shameful day for washington. this effort is not over. i want to make it clear to the american people. we can still bring about meaningful changes that wil
